There's no such thing as time. Not really.

Australia by Lola Johnson

Have you ever had the feeling you’re experiencing a moment you’ve experienced before? A déjà vu? Last month we were driving along the freeway when we overtook a van pulling a trailer. I glanced aside and then looked in front of me again. ‘Is that what I think it is?’ I said to myself. I looked aside again at the car on the trailer. ‘Yep, it’s a 70s Jaguar XJS alright.’ At that moment of recognition, I was flung back to the time when I was a teenager in Australia. The dad of one of my best mates had a Jag just like that, except his had a silvery grey colour, while the one being towed was dark green.

I stopped eating meat about a year ago. Why? Because I couldn’t look at myself in the mirror any longer without feeling bad about the abuse and exploitation of farm animals.

Not long after that, I stopped eating nearly all dairy products I only eat butter, and occasionally cheese which, basically, means I have a vegan diet. However, this still doesn’t make me animal friendly. And, on top of this, I don’t feel the need to associate with other vegans.

Tomorrow in the Netherlands, it will be Remembrance Day, and the day after it will be Liberation Day. It’s days like these that give me mixed feelings. Is it a good thing to remember those who gave us our freedom and then celebrate this freedom? Well, maybe. In this way we can experience gratitude and be aware of the importance of freedom. On the other hand, it makes us focus on suffering.

I Love Clouds by Lonnie Bradley

“Why?” he asked and looked up at the tiny clouds slowly drifting by. “Why am I being deserted again?”

At that moment, his heart grew heavy. He did not understand why she had left him. Why he had lost her.

Then he looked down again, at the trees to the right, and he walked over to the little lake that lay hidden behind them.
